Mamata Banerjee tweeted that the manner in which important bills passed in the Parliament has hurt the federalism of the country. The criticism by West Bengal CM was a reference to the amendment of Right to Information Act Bill, 2019.

 
"Today is the International Day for Universal Access to Information. Our party strongly condemned the way in which important Bills including the amendments to the Right to Information Act was passed in Parliament," she tweeted.
 
 
The RTI (Amendment) Bill, 2019 allows the Centre to prescribe the term of office, salaries, allowances and other terms and conditions of service of chief information commissioner and information commissioners.
